SEND school workshop
Parliament’s Education Team is pleased to offer a new sensory based digital session aimed at pre-curriculum and semi-formal level groups, aged between 7-25 years old. Students will use their senses to explore Parliament, find out who works there and what they do. The session is based around a poem, which will guide the students, using rhyme, repetition and actions around the building. For students working within the formal curriculum, we offer an introduction to Parliament workshop where students will find out what parliament is, who works there and how they can get involved.
There is also a PowerPoint as a visual aide and objects in the classroom to bring the smells, sounds and textures of Parliament to life for your students. A pre-session activity is available to help introduce your students to Parliament, as well as the opportunity to virtually meet their presenters in advance to help prepare the class for their virtual session.
SEND sessions are offered once a week on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 10am and the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 2pm.
Sessions generally last from 30 minutes to 1 hour, with the intention of being as flexible as possible within the set timeframe.
Alternatively, we also offer outreach sessions.
